We really enjoyed our stay. Social distancing not a problem, everywhere was really clean, hosts very friendly. The family room was liggt, airy and very spacious. Breakfast was amazing and plentiful woth wide range of options, child friendly, location excellent. We couldn't fault anything. Our only hiccup on arrival was finding out they wouldn't normally provide towles for children. They soon responded and provided towle for our 2 but we didnt see it anywhere that thats not normally the case, had we known we would of taken our own. But absolutely value for money and a great place to stay

Lovely hotel. Not too far from town centre. On local bus route so easy to walk or ride. Breakfast excellent, lovely fresh fruit which was varied and delicious and a choice of cold or cooked items. Porridge especially delicious. Arrived very early and was allowed into rooms sit was ready. Staff pleasant and helpful.

Nice B&B
B&B had a large room, on street parking and good breakfast. It's in an area near a few other B&Bs and about a 20 min walk from the centre of Scarborough. The B&B's decor is slightly dated but this shouldn't put anyone off. The owners are very friendly and helpful.
